Problems accessing new external hardrive (device working)

Recommended Posts

I purchased http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16817173004

and http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16822144422 and put it together.


I connect it to my PC, power on and everything seems to work properly: "finds new hardware" and installs drivers. In Device Manager, it recognizes the drive as Maxtor 6 L250R0 USB Drive, Device type: Disk Drive, Location 0. Device is working properly.


However, under "Volumes" tab, if I populate the disk:

Disk: Disk 1

Type: Unknown

Status: Not Initialized

Partition Style: Not applicable

Capacity: 239267 MB


Driver is Microsoft



When I open My Computer, the drive isn't listed anywhere. I can't figure out how to access the drive. How do I get this to work?

You can also right click "my computer," hit manage, then scroll down the left to disk management. The snap in will show all the cool, fun stuff in one easy window.
